Telematic Art

Whilst our typing hands do not normally have any further role or function other than pressing keys, this installation proposes to turn our webcam chat attention away from our talking head and focus on our hands, located on a shared telepresent keyboard, as a backdrop to a new space of remote intimacy. A space that was once the domain of textual exchanges now becomes the space of performance, abstract poetry, and handheld encounters as a new sensation of being touched by text.

Touched was exhibited in the Digital Encounters Show at Horatio's Bar on Brighton Palace Pier for the British Science Festival in Brighton from the 5th to 9th September 2017.
